BMW launches the special eDrive Edition models on the Dutch market to further boost sales of electrified models. The limited-run eDrive Edition is now available to order for the BMW 225xe Active Tourer, 330e and 530e plug-in hybrid models. The specification package is very attractive as the special eDrive Edition adds high-end equipment for the three electrified Bimmers.

The new BMW 225xe eDrive Edition is a particularly all-rounding example of a plug-in hybrid vehicle. The 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 100 kW / 136 PS (134 hp) powers the front wheels, whereas the electric motor produces a maximum output of 65 kW / 88 PS (87 hp) puts the rear wheels into motion.
Thus, the 225xe achieves a hybrid all-wheel-drive configuration, with a total output of 165 kW / 224 PS (221 hp), with a combined peak torque of 385 Nm. What’s more, the overall WLTP fuel consumption figure reaches just 1.9 liters / 100 km (combined), with CO2 emissions of just 42 g/km. The maximum electric consumption hits 13.5 kWh / 100 km.
The new BMW 330e eDrive Edition is the most powerful electrified vehicle of the three with a peak output of 292 PS / 288 hp. The plug-in hybrid 3 Series is available in pure rear-driven architecture, with the 4-cylinder petrol engine rated at 135 kW / 184 PS (181 hp). The electric unit boasts 83 kW / 113 PS (111 hp). The combined consumption for the 330e is estimated at 1.7 – 1.6 l / 100 km.
Last is the new BMW 530e eDrive Edition which boasts a hybrid configuration with a peak output of 252 PS (249 hp). The electrified business sedan uses the same 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder powerplant and electric motor as the 330e. Like on the 330e, the maximum system torque is 420 Nm. However, given the vehicle’s mass, the fuel consumption for the 530 e is estimated between 2.2 and 2.0 l / 100 km.
Certainly, the new BMW eDrive Edition models will prove to be quite a sales hit, given the attractive specification, and will further help raise the client awareness on electromobility.
